Crossing of the Five Valleys

Crossing of the Five Valleys

The trek obliquely cuts the territory of the ex Mountain Community at full length, the path starts in Sasso Marconi, on the Reno's valley, it brushes Setta, it crosses Savena, Zena and Idice rivers and it ends in Monterenzio. A real trip across the Five Valleys.

The path starts in Sasso Marconi on Reno's valley, it brushes Setta, it crosses Savena, Zena and Idice rivers and it ends in Monterenzio. The road largely follows the Contrafforte Pliocenico, a natural reserve with pleasant appearance in terms of environment, geology, history and landscape.
We suggest to see: Livergnano with its peculiar houses in the rocks and the little Winter Line museum.
Monte delle Formiche is a very charming location, which is considered a sacred place since ancient times and where the “flying ants phenomenon” happens during the first week of September, every year. Thousand flying ants come here to mate, then male ants fall on the ground and die.
The path goes through different water streams, so this itinerary is travelable during Summer time only.
